No, I refuse to believe that! Six seasons and a movie!

Really stupid move, but that's life. They should stick it on Wednesdays or something with the other comedies and just have two blocks of poorly rated TV comedies.

Community needs a better timeslot. It did well when it first premiered in the 9:30 spot. NBC continuously makes an impressive effort to have nothing on worth watching. This is just the latest in a long list of mistakes.

Personally, I think Dan Harmon should start shopping the show around to other networks, including the Cable networks. (USA, TBS, Comedy Central) Rather than grief and low budgets, the show might get some actual support.

All I want is a fourth season so that the characters can graduate, that's the show's natural end-point. Going beyond that would be stretching the premise ("We all failed economics class? I guess we had better repeat it next year."), while stopping after three would be unfulfilling.

But do you really think there's an audience out there that would like this kind of comedy that HASN'T heard of the show? I have a feeling no. 4 million is still a lot of people, but I don't think there's a hidden audience out there.

Now, it might survive on a channel with lower audience demands, but that means a cheaper budget. Are you gonna tell Chevy Chase he has to take a paycut?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Every person I've introduced Community to has become addicted to the show. There's plenty more audience out there for it, the timeslot plus the network is holding the show back.

I've fed it to two people.

One hated it and the other supposedly loved it but has no drive to watch tv that is not fed to her by the box in her living room when she isn't cleaning her house or raising her children.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

This news kills me. I love Community; its easily my favorite comedy on the air right now. I do think it would be better suited on a basic cable network like FX or Comedy Central, where the numbers it pulls in would be, you know, respectable, but from a business perspective, I understand why NBC is doing this.

That said, NBC can go die in a fire for taking away my favorite laffer.

The show is dead. No other network wants it, the audience is tiny. I'll take as much of the show as I can and hope for a 13 episode fourth and final season.

Well, I'm not going to get my hopes up over Community's survival at this point, much as I love it.

But damn will I be pissed if it ends before Jeff and Annie hook up.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

if the show is surprise canceled...

They'll do a number of skits on The Soup called Post Community.

The Soup is an emergency escape pod.

Joel cares.

There's no way he would have bothered to boost Community as ferverishly as he did if he thought it was just a job.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

This always happens to shows that I watch it seems. Like Sci I'll be pissed if Jeff and Annie are not at least resolved, and before anyone jumps into say that they are resolved, no they are not. The shipper in me needs closure! Hopefully we do get the rest of this season...I have read that "Prime Suspect" is shutting down??
